This talk will be the first part of a survey of ideas and results related to the classification of topological 4-manifolds up to homeomorphism or s-cobordism. In this talk I will assume finite fundamental group, and discuss (i) the algebraic topology of 4-manifolds, (ii) stable versus unstable classification, and (iii) applications to algebraic surfaces.
